Join Dr Patricia Ganz, a medical oncologist from the University of California, USA. Dr Ganz is a pioneer in the assessment of the quality of life in cancer patients and has focused much of her clinical and research efforts in the areas of breast cancer and its prevention.
Chaired by Dr Alexandra Gilbert from the University of Leeds, this session will cover the assessment of the quality of life in cancer patients, using breast cancer as an exemplar. The discussion will cover important topics such as cancer survivorship and late effects of cancer treatment, cancer in the elderly and quality of care for cancer patients. Consideration will be given to the similarities and differences between the US and UK systems, and focus on how patients' needs are given centre stage.
